Biography:
One of the mainstays in the middle in 2017, Daniel had a standout season in the forward pack, proving hard to stop with ball in hand.

The towering forward, who is signed on at the Knights until at least the end of 2020, is a direct player who takes good metres after contact and helps the team to go forward early in sets.

The local junior made another international appearance with his twin brother Jacob for Fiji in the Pacific Islands Test in 2017 but unfortunately was sidelined with a shoulder injury for the World Cup.

Awarded Players’ Player six times in the 2017 season, it was natural progression to win the 2017 Players’ Player Award at the Club’s presentation night. He has also been selected for the Emerging Blues squad in 2018.

A defensive gun, Daniel recorded an average of 22 tackles per game and also ranked third for the Knights in all-run metres.

The youngster won Fiji’s Rising Star Award at the Petero Civoniceva Medal in 2016.

Daniel will be looking to consolidate his starting spot in the Knights squad from round 1 and continue his impressive development.
